Message from the Chair- Jo McAlpine
Best wishes to everyone in 2022. I am acting as the interim chair of the SWS until the annual meeting as Sanette has had to resign. We have some ideas for some Zoom programs for the winter months and will email you information about that as we get them arranged. We are looking at changing the executive structure of the SWS executive. More than 20 years ago we chose to have the executive filled by each local guild, in turn, in order to facilitate conference planning. Now with internet and current communication abilities we don't think that that's any longer necessary. This format also prevented interested members from playing a bigger part in the organization. We will be inviting all interested members to submit their names to serve on the executive and you can expect to get an email regarding that in the coming months. We will.also be looking for interested people to form a planning committee and others interested in keeping up our social media presence. Don't hesitate to submit your own name if you are interested in keeping SWS lively. Looks like winter plans to give us lots of time to think about these things which is also plenty of time for weaving so enjoy the winter months and we'll all look forward to the spring.
